Hatch rust. I've sanded this down and have matching rattle can to respray it. I also have a pre-'03 color matched hatch that one could swap in instead (included in the sale)

Pardon my ignorance, what does "baseline" mean? I'm familiar with that term in baseball, but new to me with regards to cars.

When one acquires a new-to-them used car, baseline refers to replacing all the fluids, filters, belts, plugs, scheduled maintenance that either wasn't done or is due, etc. See my laundry list in the first post.

So what should be done when one buys a used car will not need to be done with this rig, outside of the few things I mention at the end of the 1st post above.

Pics of the ARB drawer/slide included in sale (and would consider throwing the 63 qt Edgestar fridge into the deal):

And the rust mitigation work I'm doing on the original hatch. A little more clean up, prep and paint and she'll be good to go:
